6 Ways to Incorporate the Color of the Year in Your HomePosted in Living by Tiana Baur
The Pantone Color of the Year was announced a couple of months ago and we can’t express how awesome these colors are apart, let alone together. For the first time Pantone introduces two shades as the Color of the Year 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity are a fusion of warm and cool; promoting not only a non-traditional color match, but also gender equality. Here are six different ways to integrate these heavenly colors into your home.
The easiest way to stay up to date with the latest design styles is through your bedding. Start with a neutral comforter, then pick Rose Quartz or Serenity colored sheets. Every time you get into bed you’ll get a little reminder of what these colors represent: an antidote to modern day stresses. Whether you choose the warm embracing tone of Rose Quartz or the cool tranquil Serenity blue, you’re ensured a soothing sense of order and peace. This is the perfect way to relax at night and make sure you wake up on the right side of the bed.
A SMEG fridge is about the cutest way we can think of to jazz up your kitchen. These adorable fridges will add a pop of color
and a retro feel to your home. Think of it as an ode to 2016 and the amazing year you are going to create for yourself. If you don’t want to commit to the Color of the Year in the form of an appliance, add some towels or kitchen decor.
If you’re thinking of remodeling your bathroom, go bold and opt for Rose Quartz or Serenity colored tiles. If tile is a little too permanent, opt for a new rug and towels in one of these lovely colors. Perhaps you should get new towels to go with the newly improved room because who doesn’t love a reason to get brand new fluff?
The Dining Room
This one is easy. It’s all about the tablecloth and napkins in Serenity with a touch of Rose Quartz – or visa versa. You can easily accent your table with fresh flowers in this year’s colors too (we’re thinking pink peonies). If you’re really serious about color, invest in some dinnerware or serving pieces as well.
Offices are often the forgotten room in a house where function overshadows form. Why not spruce up your office by painting the walls (or at least one wall) Rose Quartz or Serenity? You can also add a touch of color with desk accessories and an accent pillow on your chair.
This is essentially its own room right? It’s beginning to look a lot like spring and we think you should celebrate the end of winter with a little shopping. Here’s some inspiration for how to add this year’s colors into your wardrobe in a seriously sleek and classy style.
